The new space will have room for 24 physicians. A clinic Kelsey-Seybold has in Cinco Ranch will remain open, said Khalaf. Kelsey-Seybold announced in February that it would double?

Energy expats form clean-tech company

One of Houston's recent Kickstarter projects comes from a couple of oil and gas engineers who wanted to cut costs on their energy bills.

Astros report: Josh Zeid moves on; catcher market thins

Josh Zeid, the 27-year-old reliever who debuted with the Astros in 2013, was claimed by the Detroit Tigers on Thursday. Zeid had a down year battling injuries, allowing six home runs in 20 2/3 innings with a 6.97 ERA before surgery on both his feet ended his season. But he was stronger the year prior, and the righty has some deceptively hard stuff. Zeid?s four-seam fastball averaged 94.68 mph in 2014, according to Baseball Prospectus, making him the hardest throwing Astros reliever with at least 200 fastballs thrown aside from Anthony Bass. (Mike Foltynewicz was fifth in the majors among relievers with at least 100 fastballs thrown at 98.31 mph. [...]

Paying top dollar for a closer might make sense for Astros

Big money for a reliever isn?t the same as big money for a player at another position, and that could be a reason why the Astros might spend top dollar for a ninth-inning arm. On one hand, it?s counter-intuitive for the Astros to make a reliever their highest paid player. The team would probably benefit more from a big bat on the left side of the infield or a starting pitcher. Relievers don?t have as significant an impact on a team as a starting pitcher or position player in terms of innings or games played ? although, there is an argument to be made that fewer blown saves equals a [...]

Now a Maverick, former Rockets fan favorite Chandler Parsons holds no grudge

When Chandler Parsons walked into Toyota Center on Saturday before the Rockets beat the Mavericks 95-92, he did a double take, looking down a long hallway toward the home team?s locker room. Instead of going down the hallway he walked countless times the past three seasons, he made a left and walked into the Dallas locker room. Unwelcome in Toyota Parsons, a 6-9 forward who spent his first three seasons in the NBA with the Rockets, was booed when he stepped on the court Saturday. A place that used to welcome him snarled at his presence. Parsons, 26, left the Rockets in the summer during free agency when the Mavericks [...]

Obama aides: Immigration order could shelter 5 million

WASHINGTON - The highly contentious executive order President Obama is rolling out tonight will help up to 5 million immigrants who are in the U.S. illegally get work permits and pay taxes, while beefing up border security and cracking down on new illegal crossers, White House officials said. Giving the most detailed rendering so far of Obama's plan, the president's aides laid out a series of steps designed to shift enforcement priorities away from families with deep roots in the country and focus instead on recent arrivals and those with criminal records. Officials will remove the age cap, which was set at 31 years of age in 2012. [...] those seeking to stay will be required to have lived in the U.S. only since January 2010, a shift from the original cut-off date of January 2007. Tea party champion Ted Cruz, the junior Republican senator from Texas, also took to the Senate floor Thursday to rally opposition to Obama's executive action. [...] under the Secure Communities Program that works with local law enforcement, federal officials will be told to target those with criminal convictions, not merely those who have been arrested for crimes, administration officials said.
